Five significant families have owned what is now The Blair House Bed and Breakfast. It was originally built and owned by Nathaniel Willis, the first publisher of what is now the Chillicothe Gazette. It also passed through the hands of Thomas Worthington, Ohio's sixth Governor. From 1879 to 1990 it was owned by Ellen Tiffin Cook, first cousin to Lucy Webb Hayes. The federal style of the original home has been transformed somewhat over the years, however many of the features remain just as they were. Most recently the kitchen has been upgraded to modern chef's delight with center island, quartz countertops and new cabinets, recent roof replacement and newer boiler. The spaciousness of the home is second to none in the area and provides ample room for entertaining. The courtyards are gorgeous and abundant with flowers and some trees that date for possibly centuries. Truly a gem of history and a rare find for anyone.
